I'd like to thank John (Rivet) for this outstanding salsa that he shared with me. This is my personal review, and it was a very enjoyable event. Luckily, I still have some left for appealing my taste buds. Appearance: A rich dark red color, very much like the color of a chipotle adobe. You can clearly see seeds, and chunks of what are jalapeno, cayenne, and tomato. Aroma: A vinegar base with the sweetness of peppers and other spices. Very pleasant aroma that is well balanced. Texture: Nice chunks of jalapeno, cayenne, and tomato. There are other ingredients that are ground smaller, but yet giving it a chunky texture. This is a good texture that won’t easily fall off your burrito, tacos, nachos, or any other food. Taste: You’re very first taste is the vinegar, which seems to be of a good quality, then it is followed by the sweet and savory flavors of peppers, tomatoes, and other spices. The initial taste is a very good blending of compatible flavors. The heat then comes on by starting at the back of the throat, tongue, and roof of the mouth. It works its way towards the front, and by the time it hits your lips it’s mellowing out. The heat level is strong, but not offensive as the great balance of flavors blends it to a great balance. This is a unique tasting salsa that is hot, and loaded with some very pleasant flavors. It is the best that I can remember tasting in at least 50 years of salsa tasting/eating.enjoying. John this is a killer salsa. Just the facts. It's all good my friends. .
